Customer Reviews

work well the first two times we used it but they did not ship the plug for the drain and the one we put in caused the unit to leak water.

I've been using this for 2 years and it does the job. However, within a fee weeks of purchase the water tank started to leak and Avantco customer service was not very helpful. I've also had some issues with the spigot. Not the easiest to disassemble either.

I loved this for mixing Mexican style chocolate that is a little thicker than regular hot chocolate. but it did a great job mixing and kept it hot for those cold months

Great unit, Worked wonderful for hot choc. and other warmed beverages. We used our custom hot choc. mix, put in daily and had no issues. Double check the unit but it works good. When cleaning it did have some leaks quickly, thats why 4/5.

This dispenser works great for our Mexican hot chocolate. It’s meant to MAINTAIN your hot chocokate hot and fresh. So we make it stovetop at our kitchen first, then pour it into this machine for hot holding for our morning customers.

This Avantco product was shipped on November 20th and received for an important Christmas Market my company sells at each year. Its use was to maintain Hot Chocolate temperatures above 165 f which it did. It was not used to heat the beverage as I made sure of the temp safety of the milk product going into the dispenser. It performed well for 3 days. All it really needed to do was dispense and keep it temperature above said degrees. However, after following cleaning protocols the dispenser no longer turns power off by on/off switch. You have to unplug it to turn off power which makes it unsafe. This is after 3 days use and within 30 days of purchase. I expect to be contacted about help with replacement/ repair.

How can I accurately define this machine. I bought two of them they work but one developed a squeak very irritating. When serving to kids I like the ability to turn down the heat and serve at a lower temp!
